We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

​All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.It has the ability to easily load slowly changing dimensions.​The installation of the client ODI Studio is easy.​Besides loading data, we do most of our transformations in ODI.In our DW/BI solution, ODI is the main tool to integrate the data in a daily batch way.Most of the functions are very straightforward, like the data model, mapping, package, and load plan. Thus, a new user could get started very fast.I do not have to maintain a separate ETL instance. I can change the SQL when something is not performing correctly.It can integrate with more recent databases like Cassandra, Hadoop, and other more recent Big Data databases.

Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged. There is also an excellent logging replacement called BiXpress that provides both historical and real-time monitoring which is more efficient and much more robust than the built-in logging capabilities. And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools.It has the ability to be deployed into the cloud through Data Factory, and run completely as a software as a service in the cloud.In SSIS, the scope is not only to handle ETL challenges, but it will allow us to do so many other tasks, such as DBA activities, scripting, calling any .exe or scripts, etc.

It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasonsIt lacks a suite of tools suitable for fully processing data and moving it into decision support warehouses.​The stability of the software could be improved. Sometimes, the software just crashes. ​If there was an add-on tool to hide the performance issues and solve them for me, then I might be interested in that as it would provide me value.I rate it a seven out of 10 because there is room for growth because ODI is still new, in comparison to Informatica, which is a mature product.Technical Support could be better.It needs easier security.I would only point out some minor bugs or glitches in the development interface (ODI studio).

You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price.A change in the metadata source cripples the whole ETL process, requiring each module to be manually reopened.SSIS can improve in handling different data sources like Salesforce connectivity, Oracle Cloud's connectivity, etc.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Being an ODI developer, I never had to pay for this product. I know that the pricing/licensing is not really low, but the product is really good.

t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base.

If you are new in ETL/ELT tools, ODI can be quite complicated when you do exercises or implementation while it's very easy for you to create a package in SSIS tool in my point of view.

SSIS is ETL tool (Extract, Transform and Load)
ODI is ELT tool (Extract, Load and Transform)

Some factors you can consider to determine which tool is suitable to you
- Your environment: OS, database engine and which technologies your team is using. If you use SQL Engine and .NET, SSIS might be the choice. But you use Oracle or other open sources, ODI is the candidate.
- What kind of data sources do you usually proceed? If SQL Database, CSV file, Excel... go ahead with SSIS....
- Licensing cost although SSIS are ODI IDE are free but they are costed when you deploy them to PRODUCTION.

We are a SSIS shop, however currently we are implementing Oracle Fusion and during the implementation process it came to light that SSIS will not meet all our requirements. Some of the key once that I could remember from the top of my head are:
SSIS was not supporting event-based application integration
SSIS was not able to support UCM service as required to manage integration with Oracle Fusion.

The option was to use JCS, which required heavy custom coding, so we finally ended up using JCS-SX (was a cloud-based service as compared to JCS) and Dell Boomi to balance custom development and easy management of integration interfaces.

Hope this helps!

the best tool I have found is Pentaho.

For the price, it meets everything Informatica does the learning curve to start is about 3 weeks

ODI12c further builds on its flexible and high-performance architecture with comprehensive big data support and added parallelism when executing data integration processes.  It includes interoperability with Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) for a quick and simple migration for OWB customers to ODI12c.  Additionally, ODI can be monitored from a single solution along with other Oracle technologies and applications through the integration with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.

SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved.
